Variety — Joel Kinnaman and Lea Seydoux will star in “The Horse Boy”, a film adaptation of Rupert Isaacson’s New York Times bestseller. Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman is set to write and direct. “The Horse Boy” will start shooting in October in Sweden, the U.K. and Mongolia.

The film follows the journey of Emily and Jonathan’s son, Noah, an autistic child who rarely talks and isn’t improving despite his parents’ efforts to connect with him. When Jonathan notices that Noah is more peaceful and seems more able to communicate while riding horses, he sets off to take his family for a ride through the Mongolian plains to meet shamans in order to cure his son.

“‘Horse Boy’ is a passion project for Folman, who said he felt compelled to explore this important story in a cinematic way. “‘Horse Boy’ is a love story about a man and a woman who, against all odds are willing to take the biggest possible risk, not only to rescue their son, but to rescue their love for each other, their memories of the bond they used to share,” said Folman, who added that Mongolia will be portrayed in a unique way in the film.

The movie has been pre-bought by Canal Plus and Cine Plus and is backed by Creative Europe’s Media Program, Caviar Film Financing and the Tax Shelter of the Federal Belgium Government, Screen.brussels and the Federation Wallonia Brussels.
